Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus price and release date

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus price and release date
Apple took to the stage and announced not one, but two largish iPhone editions - the 6 and the 6 Plus, with 4.7" and 5.5" screen diagonals, respectively. Better screens, faster processor, better cameras, thinner design - what's not to like in those two, but the lingering question about the pricing and release date of these beauties remains.

Well, Apple didn't leave us hanging for long, and announced the usual pricing for the iPhone 6 - $199 on contract, with a new 128 GB version going for $399, and a 64 GB one at a $299 price point. The 5.5" iPhone 6 Plus phablet starts at $299 for 16GB, $399 for 64, $499 for 128GB. Release date will be September 19th, with preorders starting September 12th, while some countries will be getting it a week later, on September 26th.

As for the full retail off-contract price? It depends on the country, as usual. Starting with the US, we blast off at $650 without a contract, for the 16 GB iPhone 6, all the way up to $949 for the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus. In Europe they typically start at EUR 699, respectively, going up to EUR 999 for the most expensive 6 Plus. Well, save for France and, especially, Italy, where all prices are jacked up higher with a ten... or a few tens. The iPhone 6 in UK takes it from 539 pounds sterling with VAT, while China still hasn't received a full retail pricing for the two new iPhones, although they are prominently featured on the local Apple Store site there.

When it comes to the release date, the carriers just started preorders September 12th, which will be followed by a September 19th launch in 10 markets: U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the U.K. A week after, on September 26th, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be available to order in 18 other markets - Switzerland, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Luxembourg, Russia, Austria, Turkey, Finland, Taiwan, Belgium, Portugal and the United Arab Emirates, with others to follow suit soon.

You don't use your brain when typing?? Feel sorry for those like you living on this planet. It just ruins humanity. Pathetic at its best.

Actually my friend, you leave in a fantasy world and it's time for you to wake up before you enter start having a seizure and go into a coma. Apple is not crap and but it isn't like the other companies out there either. You understand that Apple designs luxury products, right? or maybe you don't know the dif between Basic elements and premium elements.

For 128GB, 2012 1080p (Retina) display, & STILL a dual-core with 1GB of RAM??? Ohh Man Apple is pulling the wool on it's fan base! The Note 4 comes with 32GB & can take a 128GB MicroSD Card... & it's STILL not $499.99... WOW!

plus you have usb otg support so your storage is unlimited, well, the biggest i have had working on my note 3 is 2TB external drive, and it plays all my movies and music nativly no need to convert lol.

Officially you mean. An S5 "officially" only supports a 64GB but they do 128's, I would assume a newer Note 4 does this as well, no?

16gb, 64gb and 128gb are the official numbers.

Even the Galaxy S4 exynos version supported 128 gb cards..

Then stick with your Note!!! Apples Dual Core A8 beats the crap out of Note 4's Quad Core. So why would you need a Quad Core in an iPhone? Please... you're a joke!

I agree that HTC makes beautiful smartphones and some are premium but the Android system ruins everything.

No 32GB? Most standard memory size?

It'll force people to pony up the extra $100 for more memory. It's genius from the screw your customer perspective.
